Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

So if Florida gives its money back, I think it ought to all go to California.

Let's see if Montereyan disagrees.

... he had already disagreed. He wants it all ;)

Of course, as an advocate for the CA-HSR in particular (though not necessarily for everything done by the CHSRA), that's not surprising.

I still say that if Florida, as the other Express HSR system, wants to give its money back, it should go straight to California, and at an 80:20 match rather than the excessive 50:50 match promised by the Governator.

But if Emerging HSR money is given back, at least some of it should go to bringing one of the other Emerging HSR to 110mph operation.

After several sleeps on it, maybe The Cascade Corridor (Washington/Oregon), the Wolverine (Chicago/Michigan), and the DC/Richmond leg of the Carolinian.

I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.
